Abstract

The Case of Laryngeal Lipoma

Laryngeal lipoma is a pathology that is quite rarely encountered. Within laryngeal benign tumors, it has an incidence of approximately 1%. Lesions, big ones, may necessitate a tracheotomy due to causing obstruction of the respiratory tract or making intubation difficult. In this study, the case of a 64-year old man with laryngeal lipoma is discussed. The lesion was 2 x 1.5 centimeters on the aryepiglottic fold and presented as a stalked and dynamic mass. The patient received a direct laryngoscopy, without needing a tracheotomy.

The histopathology of laryngeal lipoma cases, clinical evaluation and approaches to treatment will also be discussed.
